Debian has a couple of bug reports open, asking for a newer version to
be packaged - you can view them at <>.=20
So far I don't think any of them have followups from the maintainer,
tho.  In fact, I don't see any recent activity at all on the BTS.  I
think there was something on one of the mailing lists recently... I'll
see if I can dig it up.

Here it is (not quite as recent as I thought):

Personally, I'd love to see 1.8.x packaged.  I'll see if I can get in
touch with the maintainer... if he's still around he might be willing
to accept a NMU (non-maintainer upload).  If he's dropped off the face
of the earth, of course we'll want to get someone else.
